Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *k`[ŭ]ri
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: to rake up
Russian meaning: сгребать
Turkic: *küre-
Mongolian: *kura-, *kurija-
Tungus-Manchu: *xeri- / *xeru-
Japanese: *kur-
Comments: EAS 97, KW 248, Poppe 79, Цинциус 1984, 121-122. The etymology seems quite probable, although the TM vocalism is not clear (a result of some contamination?). For Jpn., however, cf. alternatively PA *kū̀rV 'to cut out' or PA *k`uli 'dig' q. v.
